Desert Discoveries


Day One: Ouarzazate

After a restful night spent in the magical setting of Amanjena, set off for the first day’s drive, towards Ouarzazate. Translating literally to ‘city without noise’, the location is famous for being the set of many films, home to Atlas Studios. On the picturesque drive, the Unesco site of Ait Ben Haddou – a fortified village and great example of Moroccan earthen clay architecture that provides a perfect stop-off opportunity before arriving in Ouarzazate just in time for lunch and an afternoon of exploration in this unique location.

Separating the Mediterranean and Atlantic coastlines from the Sahara Desert and extending 2,500km across north western Africa, the Atlas Mountains form the backdrop to the second day of driving. Following breakfast at Amanjena, head towards the mountain range for breathtaking views, before ascending to Kasbah du Toubkal for lunch. The descent back towards Marrakesh makes for a scenic afternoon’s driving back to Amanjena.

Day Three: Dades Gorge

The adventure begins with an alternative mode of transport, a morning helicopter flight departs from Amanjena where upon landing near Dades Gorge, the driving will commence. Traverse the rugged gorges and its dramatic vistas all the way to the Todra River. Here, a picnic lunch in ultimate seclusion awaits.

Day Two: Poros and Hydra

Island hoping is one of the best ways to experience the Peloponnese. Set out along the coastline, with the first stop off at Galata – a traditional Greek coastal town. Park the car and take a short 2-minute boat ride to the small island of Poros where an opportunity to explore one of the region’s hidden gems awaits. Back on the road, take the coastal route to Metochi, where a private Riva takes guests across to Hydra. After lunch overlooking the port, wander the streets of the island before heading back across the water for a scenic drive back to Amanzoe.

Day Three: Epidavros

Wake to a leisurely breakfast before an hour’s drive to the ancient theatre of Epidavros. Built in the 4thCentury BC, the theatre is renowned as one of the best-preserved Ancient Greek structures and for its incredible acoustics. Spend time exploring this magnificent site, before enjoying a packed lunch prepared by the Amanzoe chefs, or alternatively, in one of the restaurants nearby, overlooking Kólpos Epidávrou bay.

A town on the banks of the lake, Salo has a long promenade perfect for a post-lunch stroll and admiring Garda’s vistas. Return to Venice mid-afternoon, with a stop in Verona – the setting of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.
